If you have a long-term medical condition you GP may add your medication to your repeat prescriptions. This means that you may be able to order these again without the need to see the GP.
Usually we can release the completed prescription to you after 24 working hours, although sometimes it may take slightly longer than this.
Ordering a prescription is simple. You can:
Visit the Surgery
You can order your repeat prescription by speaking to our reception team at either Tramways or Middlewood Medical Centre. Please try and make sure you know which medications you require in advance to help theh receptionist order the items that you require.
Our dedicated prescription line is available 14:00 - 16:00 weekdays on 0114 2292971 between 14:00 – 16:00. This line is for repeat prescription requests only and is intended to reduce the demand on the telephone lines at the busiest times.
Patients who are registered for our online services can order their medication using their personal account. This lists all the repeat medication on your medical record and allows you to order the items that you require.

Write your Request
Please write out clearly the medications that you require and either drop this into either surgery or post it directly to us. If you wish, requests can be posted back to you if you enclose a stamped address envelope with your written request. Please allow longer for these requests to be processed and should not be used when you require medication urgently.
Nominating a Pharmacy
Many prescriptions can now be sent electronically to any NHS pharmacy via the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS). When ordering your medication, If you would like to access this service please let our reception team know and they will nominate your selected pharmacy.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications. You may find a notification appear on your repeat prescription or be informed directly by our reception team. Our GPs may not be able to issue and further medications before the check is complete so please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays.
